Lorien as much as it can seems to want to be separate and isolated from most of the outside world, especially men. Very few of them spoke the common tongue, and stories of Lorien in the outside...

Is it possible that for Thingol being the tallest of the children of Eru, it was only referring to when he was around in the first age, and that some later passed him in height. This would also then...

Actually the eagles fought the winged dragons in the War of Wrath, so I think it is entirely possible that the eagles would be able to fight with a dragon, maybe not one on one but certainly with a...

Just because he is not mentioned as a maia, does not rule out that he was one as only a few maia were ever mentioned by name. In the Valaquenta when discussing the creation of dwarves, it describes...

I believe one of the factors in the curse of Isildur was the dead themselves. They had made an oath, which are very strong in ME, and since they had not fulfilled it they did not allow themselves to...

Morgoth's curse on the children of Hurin was effective without the action of Glaurang. I believe the curse was at least partly at work with Turin fleeing from Doriath after the accidental slaying of...

I believe that one of the important tasks of a banner bearer was to protect the banner. If the banner was captured, it was considered a disgrace. Therefore Elrond as the banner bearer would have to...

When I said overcome a valar, I meant Morgoth. I think in the doom of Mandos spoken to them as they were leaving, it mentions that they cannot overcome any of the valar in Arda, and it was arrogance...

Even if Feanor did agree that the jewels should be broken for the healing of the trees, it is possible that the Noldor would have gone after Melkor for the reason that he had killed their king Finwe....

One version of the making of Ea in Unfinished Tales says that Melkor's original corruption was due to his love of and want to control light. This is one reason why he hated Varda, as she was given...

Very good topic, a few things though,

Denethor wasn't corrupted by Sauron's will as Saruman was. Denethor's madness was partly due to the general strain of using the stone, and partly due to...

Does this mean that the union of Aragorn and Arwen shouldn't count because Arwen was half elven, not eldar?

No she wasn't. In a letter regarding whether or not Galadriel could really wield the one ring it was implied that Elrond was in fact more powerful. (Sorry I don't have the quote). Simply being half...

Even if Elrond knew that the hobbits were coming despite not being told so, why would Arwen be sent. She was the daughter of Elrond, (the lady of Rivendell) so why would her safety be risked...

I don't think he did. I don't believe he was descended from Elendil, either through Isildur or Anarion/Melendil and so would not have had a claim to the throne of Gondor, or the Princes of Dol Amroth...
